Miss Virginia, For Your Information & Situational Awareness Just a short note of clarification regarding the intent of the PIB. The information provided to you via the PIB is not for dissemination in the public domain. As indicated in the caveats on the first page, the PIB is solely meant for owners/operators & security personnel associated with our critical infrastructure & key resources. Although an internet forum is certainly a great way to spread the word and receive input from forum participants, it's still in the public domain and thus be accessed by both pro and anti-natural gas drilling folks. Please assist us in keeping the information provided in the PIB to those having a valid need-to-know; it should only be disseminated via closed communications systems. Thanks for your support. We want to continue providing this support to the Marcellus Shale Formation natural gas stakeholders while not feeding those groups fomenting dissent against those same companies. Jim James F. Powers, Jr. | Director Office of Homeland Security 2605 Interstate Drive | Suite 380 Harrisburg, PA 17110-9382 717-651-2715 | Cell: 717-307-5335 This e-mail message, including any attachments, is intended solely for use by the individual(s) and entity(ies) to whom addressed.

One of our researchers identified this information on a pro-gas drilling website. These pro-gas websites are monitored by the anti-gas folks. I'm concerned that some sensitive information may be reaching the wrong hands.

Current-9 September 2010: The lunar month of Ramadan is a period of fasting and reflecting for Muslims. During Ramadan, devout Muslims refrain from eating during daylight hours, generally concluding each day with a meal known as Iftar. Jihadists consider it an auspicious period for attacks in the name of Islam. In the midst of the Muslim holy month, Muslims mark Lailat Al-Qadr (Night of Power) on 5 September 2010. Ramadan is followed by a three-day festival known as Eid Al-Fitr, starting on 10 September 2010.

Aggressive protest tactics are possible. Furthermore, as the anniversary of the Plowshares Eight "direct disarmament action" approaches, there is an increased risk of escalation in anti-nuclear and anti-war activism by other militant groups in Pennsylvania (See PIB no. 127 for additional potential targets of anti-war protesters). 8 September-1 October 2010: The Jewish High Holiday season may present additional risk factors, with very high attendance at Jewish houses of worship and public gatherings in Pennsylvania.
